Anthony C. Robinson

IMG_1983-2.jpgI'm Anthony Robinson - welcome to my home on the web. I am the lead faculty member for Penn State's Postbaccalaureate GIS Certificate and Master of Geographic Information Systems programs in the John A. Dutton e-Education Institute. I am also an Assistant Director for the GeoVISTA Center in the Department of Geography.

My research focuses broadly on designing and evaluating geovisualization tools. I've done work in epidemiology, crisis management, and national security domains. My most recent efforts involve characterizing how users assemble and collect their analytical results, studying the use of visualization tools using eye-tracking, and exploring issues related to map symbol standardization in the context of emergency management.

I'm very excited to be offering one of Penn State's first MOOCs on Coursera - Maps and the Geospatial Revolution.
